Challenges

Currently, manual as well as isolated and fragmented computerized accounting systems are in operation. Different software related to tourism revenue, budgeting, procurement, payroll, financial and inventory accounting are in use in different departmental units of UWA. However, this is not resulting in effective automation of operations and reporting in a timely manner and calls for a need to improve the overall financial management system of UWA. The key issues being faced are given below:

  • Increase in difficulties in capturing and processing large volumes of financial information for the preparation and presentation of financial statements.
  • Bottlenecks being faced in providing timely, accurate and complete information for decision making.
  • Difficulties in handling the compliance with respect to increasing standards and reporting requirements.
  • Difficulties in budget monitoring
  • Difficulties in aging payables, receivables and statement of account generation
  • Difficulties in cost/ revenue center reporting and performance monitoring
  • Use of delinked software/ manual systems in Finance, human resource, fixed assets, budgeting, Inventory and order management, and procurement.
  • The incremental approach of implementing IT systems has led to many issues relating to reconciliation issues, inadequate and delayed MIS, duplicity of activities/ records/ data and redundant activities.
